TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Tampa Bay area K9 Officers and their partners spent the morning at Busch Gardens’ Adventure Island practicing their tracking skills — in water.
Police departments and sheriff’s offices K9 teams took advantage of the opportunity to test their abilities in catching and holding bad guys, diving and deep-water swimming. They are skills necessary for tracking suspects, and in missing person cases. It’s also an opportunity for local agencies to prepare for large-scale or cross-agency events.
This is the fifth year that Adventure Island hosted the K9 training day.
